Have extra materials from your latest building or remodeling project? This event will be an opportunity to donate usable building materials to two local nonprofits that specialize in the reuse and resale of building materials. Better Futures Minnesota and Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity ReStore will be onsite to vet all materials for quality and potential for resale.
